Mathematical Applications in Agriculture with Other

Mathematical Applications in Agriculture with Other Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This text teaches the critical mathematical concepts and skills that are imperative for success in the agriculture industry. Students will gain a solid foundation in practical mathematical applications specific to this field; they will develop their thinking skills through the manner in which the problems are developed; and, they will learn many real facts about agriculture. Line drawings, charts, graphs, case studies, examples, and sample problems throughout help students better grasp the concepts presented. The text is written in such a manner that the many chapters on mathematics involved in crop production, livestock production and financial management can be presented independently of one another, giving the instructor flexibility in selecting topics most appropriate to a given region. The instructor's manual conveniently offers extra problem sets and two sets of tests per chapter.

Synopsis:

This book is a must in order to build a solid foundation of critical mathematical applications needed by today's agriculture professionals. It can serve equally well as a learning tool and as a reference guide. Specifically, the book teaches the math skills required to perform successfully in the areas of crop production, livestock production and agribusiness financial management. Line drawings, charts, graphs, case studies, examples, and sample problems make the concepts easy to grasp.
